NGT: Callahan says Flowers could be one of the top guards

Callahan says of Ereck Flowers “he’s come a long way in a short period of time... he could be one of the top guards in the league.” My two cents: the angst that he would be a big issue was misplaced. He’s been fine and at times good. Far from the issue on O
Great

I hope the Redskins make him one of the highest paid guards in football. That won't blow up in their face.
As long as Snyder and Allen are around

You are right

Shanahan will have no mercy on them this weekend

“Shanahan was asked Wednesday about playing Washington: Would he take special satisfaction in beating his former franchise? He said there wouldn’t be extra juice, but his answer referenced the past turmoil.

“No, not at all,” Shanahan said. “That was a while ago. I’ve been (with) three different (teams) since. My dad retired and he’s good.

He’s accepted what we had to deal with there and we’ve moved on. Watch other people deal with it.”

However, former wide receiver Santana Moss, who spent four seasons with Kyle Shanahan in Washington, expects Shanahan to be eager to pour it on Sunday.

“Just knowing how he exited with his dad in that style, I’m sure they’re not going to hold back,” Moss said Monday on 106.7 The Fan in Washington. “I hope these guys know — on the defensive side — what’s ahead of us and be ready for it. Because Kyle Shanahan’s coming and he’s not holding nothing back.”

I always wondered why our team never tired him at Guard before giving up on him not to say he will be a good guard or that he does not have a attitude problem but you would think the team would go down every path before cutting such a high draft pick

Flowers hated it here. I was pumping him at G too but it was a poor organizational fit.
He's still..

not a good player. This reeks of a coach trying another shot to motivate him. And it will be another failed attempt.

Flowers saw himself as an offensive tackle. He wanted no part of being a guard. Also remember that flowers was looking to cash in on offensive tackle money. Its possible that flowers has been a bit humbled by his release from the giants as well as the Jaguars and I suspect that not many teams came knocking on his door this past offseason.
Everyone has thought

they could get it out of Flowers. No one ever has.

Could be but, I thought I read reports that he did not want to play anywhere but left tackle?
While I think Callahan will be a disaster of a HC,

he's a hell of an OL coach. If anyone can straighten Flowers out, it would be Bill Callahan.
He'll be cut by the end of the season

This smells of false praise, trying anything they can to get the guy motivated. Coaches do this all the time, if the stick doesn't work try the sweet. Remember when Sinorice Moss looked great and had made big improvements?

= he doesn't suck too bad.

I get the feeling that by the time he washed out at RT, he had more than worn out his welcome, so trying him at a third spot would have been too much turmoil.

Yup, that is how I recall the situation. However, the prospect of unemployment has a way of opening doors that you would prefer to leave closed normally.
The time to try Flowers at LG would have been after Solder’s signed  
Ivan15 : 10/18/2019 1:34 pm : link
And before the draft. They could have drafted a RG or tried Hernandez at RG. Hernandez is a mauler and needed technique work anyway. He might have fit better at RG.

Real problem was Flowers didn’t want to move. RT was sort of a last chance compromise as far as the Giants were concerned.

Too bad the way it all worked out.
But it really isn't too bad..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 10/18/2019 7:23 pm : link
because he also is terrible at Guard.

So he would still be an albatross on this team. Getting rid of albatrosses is good
LOL  
Jay on the Island : 10/18/2019 7:57 pm : link
"He’s been fine and at times good." That isn't exactly a ringing endorsement. As each week passes I expect to see Flowers play regress. I just hope that the Skins are stupid enough to give him a big extension.

Guys - I was only kidding with the post. The only thing I despised more than Flowers when he played for the Giants were the threads here suggesting he had turned a corner, or not allowed a sack in 5 consecutive games or some other defender nonsense...
